Don Falcone is Spaceship Eyes, whose drum 'n' bass tracks appear (and begin) the rave movie & soundtrack (Moonshine Records) Better Living Through Circuitry. With 3 full-length CDs and a 12-inch remix by Freaky Chakra, Spaceship Eyes has been praised from Billboard to Alternative Press, earning Don a place in circles such as ambient, drum 'n' bass, jungle, techno, and intelligent (IDM).
Besides being a member of Silent Records ethno-ambient legends Thessalonians and the Spice Barons, Don was an original member of American space rockers Melting Euphoria.
More recently, Don has produced a number of ambient releases for Noh Poetry Records and captains Spirits Burning, a space music project that includes Gong's Daevid Allen and over 80 other musicians.
Steve Palmer is best known as the man behind ambient psychedelicists Mooch, and as an up and coming Science Fiction author. Mooch have released five albums since their inception in 1992; the first three, "3001," "Postvorta" and "Starhenge" on the Taste label, followed with Andy Garibaldi's Dead Earnest Records releasing "In Search of the Acid Metal Grille" and "Flight of the Dub Voyager." Their forthcoming album is called "Gaiaspace" and will be released later in 2001.
"Memory Seed" (Little, Brown 1996) and "Glass" (Little, Brown, 1997) were Steve's first two SF novels, both of which brought critical acclaim. Two new novels, "Muezzinland" and "Flowercrash" are being published by the American publishers Cosmos Books in 2001.
Don and Steve have collaborated on the first Spaceship Mooch album "Gothic Ships" despite an 8000 mile separation: Don is based in Northern California, near San Francisco, Steve in the British Westcountry. Six pieces by Don were merged by Steve, adding his own sounds, to create three slices of dark electronica. The album was finished with the addition of a solo track by each. The mood is gothic, spacey, interspersed with lighter flourishes based on Don's sample-led electronica and primitive percussives, and Steve's harmonic guitar sound.
